Many of us are stuck at home these days. Most of us are completely healthy and well, but we stay inside to slow the virus down and to protect ourselves and those we love. So, what are we to do while inside all day? You should absolutely use the time to do something useful, like learning how to play an instrument, study some art-history, or maybe pick up a hobby you haven’t had time to entertain in years. But, when you are tired and just want to watch something on Amazon Prime, what should you actually watch?
Here I have gathered ten titles on Amazon Prime that I believe will help time fly and give you a great time while streaming. You will for sure not find all the movies and TV shows interesting, but I have tried to include something for those will all sorts of tastes.

Ten movies and TV shows to watch on Amazon Prime during your coronavirus quarantine
The Boys is a quite new Amazon TV series that shows us that not all superheroes are nice. It is a very surprising show because of this, and it is entertaining, surprising, and packed with action at the same time. Since it is a TV series, you will have lots of episodes to watch, meaning that you will spend a full day binge-watching if you want to get through it all in one single day.
So, how can normal people stop a bunch of evil superheroes? That is the question, and you will find the answer if you decide to watch The Boys on Amazon Prime during your quarantine.
This is my favorite Amazon Original action series. John Krasinski plays the role of the analyst Jack Ryan. He gets into trouble all the time, and he is awesome at discovering clues and solving problems that often include high-ranking politicians and leaders. There are currently two seasons of Jack Ryan ready, and both of them are great.
Jack Ryan never reaches the intensity of 24 (with Kiefer Sutherland aka Jack Bauer), but it is as close as you get it on Amazon Prime.
Brittany Runs a Marathon
Brittany is fat and not at all in good health. In the middle of this, she makes the decision to run a marathon. It can almost be compared to suddenly getting a big vision for your life in the middle of your coronavirus isolation. Yes, it is often in such situations that dreams are born, and this movie might encourage you and cheer you up on a tough day. Will Brittany succeed running the marathon? That remains a question that you will find the answer to whenever you decide to watch this movie on Amazon Prime.
Does it sound cool to watch a movie with a car that can turn into a robot? A little girl stumbles upon this car, and little does she know about it before she starts to polish the car and it suddenly turns into a robot. This is a great action movie for teenagers, and also for adults interested.
This isn’t an Amazon Original movie, meaning that I cannot guarantee that it will be around for a long time. But, at the time writing, you can watch Bumblee on Amazon Prime, included with your Prime subscription.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Would you like to be cheered up? The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is one of the most entertaining comedies of this present day. It isn’t exactly like How I met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, The Young Sheldon, and similar shows. Instead, this is a comedy that is packed with great jokes, but it is delivered in a paper of a serious world in which women aren’t accepted in the same way as their male colleagues.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is available with three seasons on Amazon Prime. In other words, this will give you loads of hours with good jokes and laughter in front of the TV during your coronavirus quarantine.
Do you have some kids at home? Would you like them to maybe learn something while they are watching and relaxing in front of the TV? Wild Kratts is the perfect solution. This is almost like a nature show, only that it shows you two animated characters as they solve trouble involving animals. There are, of course, some bad guys involved in the how, but still, this is a perfect action-series for kids who want to have fun and learn at the same time.
You Were Never Really Here
Do you want to watch something even more depressing than the coronavirus? Then you should watch You Were Never Really Here. This movie stars Jaquelin Phoenix, the man who just received an Academy Award for his role as Joker in the movie Joker. He was amazing as the Joker, but in this movie, it is just depressing. But, if you like the guy, and if you like dark movies in which we see Jaquelin Phoenix in one of his classical and depressing roles, then this is perfect for you. In other words, if you like strange movies with Jaquelin Phoenix, this might be it!
Would you like to watch a romantic movie on Amazon Prime during the COVID-19 isolation? Overboard is a romantic comedy, telling the story about a woman who works as a cleaning lady. She hasn’t had much luck so far in life, and it gets even worse as she meets a spoiled guy on his yacht. It is everything, just not love at first sight. It couldn’t be further from the truth.
However, things will change throughout the movie, and this will give you a chance to watch a romantic comedy that will cheer up your heart and your soul!
Mission Impossible: Fallout
The most recent movie in the Mission Impossible series with Tom Cruise can be streamed on Amazon Prime. The awesome thing is that you can watch this movie without watching the earlier Mission Impossible movies, and still have a great time and enjoy the full story of the movie.
Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is the crazy secret agent who is capable of doing the most incredible tasks, all with the help of his friends. The stunts are wild, and the scenery of the movie is stunning. In other words, this is a two-hour-long adrenaline kick with lots of action, and beautiful scenery from Paris, and also from the Preacher’s Pulpit in Norway (the end of the movie).
A Simple Favor
Are you a fan of Anna Kendrick? In this movie, she plays the role of an innocent mother who meets a very special lady as she takes her girl to school. Her friend is mysterious, she is wealthy, and she has a special effect on her. But, then one day, she is gone! What happened to her? Anna Kendrick is in the middle of the entire story as she digs for the truth.
This is a typical thriller that comes down without being too scary, but at the same time, it has some interesting twists and it should be able to entertain you for a couple of hours.
Those were some suggestions for movies to watch on Amazon Prime during your Coronavirus isolation/quarantine. Do you have other suggestions or maybe ideas for what people should watch on Amazon Prime in these days?
